With bus and subway stops one block away, you can reach Lincoln Center in 10 minutes for classical music, opera, ballet, shopping, and restaurants. Times Square is a 15 minute subway ride for theatre, night life, and exploring. The bus across town to world renowned museums, shopping, and public parks is on the corner.

Something about ourselves
My husband and I both work for international health organizations. We travel frequently to Africa, Latin America, and Asia for our work and sometimes for vacation. We have three children between the ages of 17 and 22; two are finishing high school and one is in college. We enjoy travel and getting to know new places and meet different people. We feel very fortunate to live in New York City because it is diverse, interesting, international, and active and it offers so many cultural activities.
